I'm def down for August.
I wouldn't be able to attend the weekend of the 21st as I'll have to make up some shifts that weekend since the following weekend I'm driving to Kansas for the SAE baja competition that my school is entered in. Since I am the only licensed welder with any welding skill it's crucial that I go to do any repairs that may be required during the race.

Soooo....what if you don't find a job and get paid by the time it is time for CanAm whatever date we decide? You expect us to reschedule it then too?

I don't expect nobody to reschedule for only 1 person. All i'm saying is 1-2months to find a job is less stressful then 1week.

Besides, my GF goes to college so even if i was free, she wouldn't.

Welcome to Quebec. Its not a Holiday in Quebec. The Monday is a Federal holiday, but in QUEBEC, the Saturday and Sunday is a business as usual, and school is on just like any other day. (Yes, Schools and Exams do happen on Saturday and Sundays).

Don't take this the wrong way, but I see a lot of peoples writing that they seem almost offended and that we don't care about their previous commitments, or that they think just because its a long weekend that people would have it off.

I agree that Dany, whether he finds a job now or in 3 months doesn't really matter all that much, I mean, you typically do interviews and find a job for as soon as your done school, but that might be my only thinking.

All that Dany was trying to let you know is that a good number of people from the CAQ / Quebec reigon will probably not be able to make it that weekend. Hes not bashing you for being busy in June, hes not criticizing you either, hes simply letting you know that while, 30 guys might have showed up in June, because of exams or previous commitments that THEY have, it might only be 5.

I know that on May 21st I'll be in Mosport racing at the SCCA World Challenge event, and I'm stuck also. Sucks, 2 years in a row I'm gonna miss :(

I'm down for August though.

Can't please everyone.

I'm going to leave this poll open until Sunday night.

And another thing, if I see anyone vote in the poll who hasn't shown any interest in the event, or is in an area that would make it geographically impossible/improbable to attend, you're going to get an infraction.

Unrelated question: Canada is a country......and places like Quebec and Ontario are states within that country......but different states observe holidays differently than one another? How does that work exactly?
